National Roots Day is celebrated during the Christmas holiday season! This is an important family holiday in which people tend to visit relatives. Throughout the evening, interesting stories from the family are heard, revealing the pedigree.
America has always welcomed migrants – they came for a better life, changed their names, took root in the traditions of the country and considered themselves practically indigenous. But a person returns to his origins – everyone should know and remember the history of the family! It is sad if there is no idea about the ancestors that influenced today’s existence. Behind each of us are relatives!
We have not found the person who created National Day, but two things can be said about him: he honored the history of the family and wanted others to know more about himself. The holiday has been celebrated in the USA for 40 years, and during this time it has become a favorite – more and more people join it every year. This is a real tradition!
